Stopped at Mixto for a quick sip and bite. While we didn't stay very long, the margarita's were great, especially paired with the warm tortilla chips and fresh quac. Service was friendly and prompt and for what we ordered, prices were very reasonable.

Sadly, Mixto has closed. It goes to show you that restaurants shouldn't mess with a successful formula. A new restaurant is moving in, but is more expensive. We will miss the old Mixto.

Mexican/TexMex/SW inspired food. It is inexpensive with very casual vibe. You can eat in our outside directly across from the river. This restaurant is currently closed for the season, and we're not that confident it will reopen for Spring/Summer 2014. Check with local sources before you plan to eat here.

Love the atmosphere, great outdoor seating - food is typically cold and so so. Servers are typically friendly - but service is always VERY slow. I believe it is partly due to the kitchen.

I returned with an out of town visitor hoping to experience the same wonderful food and experience during several visits in 2012. To my dismay and embarrassment, the meal was simply awful. My sister ordered a Fish Taco, and I was shocked the chef would present the plate served to her. I ordered a Taco Salad, a meal I had... More

My wife and I sat outside and the seating on water street was nice. We shared the triple dipper which had queso, guacamole and a very good corn salsa served with chips. We also had a beer and a prickly pear margarita. The service was slow and we had to go ask another waiter for more chips. Yes we will... More

We went to Mixto for lunch. The restaurant is right on the Wilmington Riverwalk and has outdoor seating which is nice when the weather cooperates. They do allow dogs in the sidewalk seating area. The menu is Mexican-based but with an original twist. For example, I had a tofu taco that was one of the most delicious ways I have... More

We stopped here for margaritas and they were delicious and refreshing. They have a nice patio with umbrellas for shade. The waitress was very friendly and explained things well. We tried the classic margarita and it was very good. We also tried the cucumber margarita and it was so unique and refreshing. They make their own homemade cucumber puree that... More

I went to Mexto last night for dinner and sat outside. The person I was with ordered a glass of white wine, needless to say the wine was disgusting bad bubbly almost like it was open for a week to long. A young girl, maybe the manager came to the table and explained the wine and told me the wine... More
